Re: Un named bamboo??
You can tell by the fat chrome reel seat that that is one of the Japanese rods that flooded the market post war and into the early '60s. The nine foot, 3 piece that I had as a kid cost $3 new in 1964.
I have a different 8.5' Japanese cane rod now that I rebuilt and sometimes use and while it's a bit heavier than most people would care for, it's actually casts very well.
